EVENTS & TASTINGS

Wine Tastings & Dinners to Beer Tastings & Parking Lot Parties, Taylor’s always has something Exciting going on!

We’ve always thought that the best way to learn what a wine tastes like is to actually TASTE it.  To help or customers learn more about the wines we carry as well as craft beers and other local products we sell, we host numerous events throughout the year.

Several times each year we partner up with our favorite winemakers to host food and wine pairing events at one of Raleigh’s top restaurants.
